Top Ten Most Overrated Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 November Rain - Guns n Roses

"Nothing last forever, not evan the cold November rain". This stuff is pure gold!

It's a nice song but it is too overrated.

Came out at a time when it was the best of what was. Doesn't make it a classic. Yelling a Sinatra song gets you points in the one of the worst eras in music - grunge.

Die. - LarrytheFairy

22 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

This is a good song! Although it might be just a bit overrated. Still, it's great! - micahisthebest

The song is (or was. Nobody remembers it nowadays) overrated by the fact people didn't know other sad songs that were waaay better

This is not a bad song... It's actually fantastic. No wonder so many people ' love it. - Napstablook

Song is not great, it's just boring, it's trying to be a sad song, but there are much better sad songs out there. + instrumental part is garbage not gonna lie.

23 Crazy in Love - Beyonce

Best song of the 2000's? I think that poll shared their own opinion and nothing more. This song topped only 6 or 7 countries. Totally overrated piece of trash - Alexandr

Horrible song, annoying and over played. Anytime I hear any Beyonce song change the station. All because of crazy in love. Get over it Beyonce sucks

Take this off its an classic! - JaysTop10List

This is when Beyonce started to suck, since she wasn't in Destiny's Child anymore. Overrated song. - olliv

24 Single Ladies - Beyonce

If you hate it then you should've put a lid on it!

Hey Kanye your girl Beyonce created on of the worst songs of all time!
Of all time!
Not to mention the video is really stupid. She has no lyrical depth whatsoever with this as a prime example of just how shallow she is.

Annoying, this deserves to be one. - LukeTargaryen

The start of the song has the "woop woop" like Stupid Hoe

25 Master of Puppets - Metallica

No, this song isn't even overrated. You want an overrated Metallica song? Look at Enter Sandman or Nothing Else Matters. Master of Puppets is by far the best Metallica song and the best metal song of the 1980s, period, end of discussion.

I like a lot of Metallica songs but this one sucks and is easily my least favorite. The chorus is so so bad

Another kickass song by Metallica! I love this song!

26 Crank That - Soulja Boy

Nobody likes it, therefore its not over rated

All the idiots tried to look cool dancing to it and it got big and soulja boy got 15 minutes of fame, and now works at burger king

Pure cancer. One time I saw a guy dabbing to this song, and he called it a "classic". I think I lost brain cells from that statement.

27 I C** Blood - Cannibal Corpse

Pop and rap songs with "bad lyrics" like Wrecking Ball, Real Slim Shady, All About That Bass and Anacondas all get hate for being dirty while this song which is about masturbatinf and having sex with dead girls anuses and IT'S PRAISED? You guys are hypocrites! - AlphaQ

28 Fancy - Iggy Azalea

In The chorus that little kiddish voice is somewhat catchy.


This song is so obnoxious. It sounds like little kids are singing it, if you
call this music, you must be deaf. every time I hear this song I cringe.
I'm sorry, but I really don't like it.


29 Heathens - Twenty One Pilots

Seriously? , What's So Good About This Song? , Its Just 2 Mediocre Guys Sounding Dark Song For A Horrible Movie

Awful Garbage, I Can't Go Anywhere Without Anyone Praising This Trash - VideoGamefan5

This seriously needs to be higher this song is boring and bland and yet it's the best song of 2016? Bull - christangrant

This is by far their worst song, but people like it because it was in Suicide Squad, I guess..not only does the instrumental suck, but the lyrics too. It's supposed to be a message towards the fans to stop mistreating new fans, but it's so lost in its own meaning, just like Blurryface was. If this is their new style, they're not lasting. 2/10 - naFrovivuS

30 We Are the Champions - Queen
31 Hey Ya! - Outkast

I love this song so much! Yes! Another good song with no bad words! Rap songs with no bad words are cool.

Actually I'm fine with rap with cursing but I said that because I like rap as a whole. - AlphaQ

I like this song. It's not that overrated. Yes, the lyrics are repetitive but it has a good sound to it.

This song isn't bad, and is one of the better mainstream songs of the 2000s, but people only know outkast for this and the way you move. Not for each of their incredible flow and storytelling

Boring, generic song, that really goes nowhere! Except to the part of the brain that triggers annoyance X10

32 Ravens - Mount Eerie

I'm sorry, but I just don't get it. Best song of the year? Nah. I don't think so at all because it's just so...boring. The story is sad but this is so boring that I just can't get myself to enjoy it. - DCfnaf

No. - ProPanda

33 I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston
34 Fight Song - Rachel Platten

It's so amazing that this song received so much praise and hate at the same time. If you go to the comment section of the music video for this song, you'll see tons of admiration for this song's "inspirational" message and when you look in places like Worst-Songs-of-2015 lists, this song gets so widely hated. Even a handful of Hillary Clinton's (who actually used this song for her speech) staff members hate this song. - NiktheWiz

35 Poker Face - Lady Gaga

I can't stand this song it actually sucks. So overrated

Do you want to smoke weed then din


Yeah...this song just annoys me.

36 Bennie and the Jets - Elton John

Elton John is overrated by so many old people it's not funny. - NuMetalManiak

37 Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke

Maybe once Robin Thicke hits puberty this song will be okay. Probably not. Also, who was dumb enough to put Smells Like Teen Spirit, Stairway to Heaven, Imagine, and Bohemian Rhapsody on here? -

Most popular song of 2013 is so annoying and there are better songs this year.

I still don't understand how a song that took 30 minutes to make got so popular. The song is a plague.

My mom does not let me listen to this song - mayamanga

38 Lose Yourself - Eminem

Number 10 on Best Songs Of All Time? If that isn't evidence that Eminem is overrated, I don't know what is! - yaygiants16

This song is overrated. And that means something's considering I'm an eminem fan. Seriously, not afraid and kings never die are 10x better than this

This song is amazing - harr4

It's good but it is no Rakim really or even Amoc

39 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem

Seriously, what's so special about this garbage? Except that two famous sweepers are carrying it

You may think it's garbage because you don't know the storyline. That's why people don't like All About That Bass - AlphaQ

Eminem still is the best. Though I think Rihanna ruined it. Eminem still covered some of it to good.

What?! How can you call Eminem a clown? Eminem, one of, IF NOT THE GREATEST lyricists and musicians of all time! How?! YOU ARE AN IDIOT! YOU REALLY don't UNDERSTAND MUSIC

In terms of Eminem status, I'll say this isn't one of his best. Definitely preferred Not Afraid and No Love. - naFrovivuS

40 Royals - Lorde

I don't understand why everyone is all like " ROYALS IS LIKE MY FAVORITE SONG" and how it's even "real music." Like come on there is way better songs too. This didn't even deserve to be #1. Same with Roar.

Royals is Extremely overrated. - Gamecubesarecool193

I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE this song! From the other stuff I've heard from Lorde, I can easily say that she will be an artist that will make no good songs in my book.

Let me get this out of the way, I hate Lorde. She's more plastic than a doll. Her personality just screams Tumblr famous user who is third wave feminist in disguise as a weird edgy teen. It's pretentious, and "Royals" is the cherry on top of an overrated, overglorified piece of crap.
